According to NeNe Leakes, editing is partly to blame for making it seem like the recent “Real Housewives of Atlanta” bout was anyone’s fault but Kenya Moore’s.
“Why do you think they let Kenya narrate the whole fight scene? Why do you think they took the part out when Kenya was charging across the room?” NeNe asked.
After the brawl, NeNe chastised Kenya for leaving her seat, but NeNe admitted that she wasn’t sure why Christopher Williams, who was verbally confronting Kenya, decided to stand up.
“Christopher had a question in his hand that he wanted to answer standing up for reasons unbeknownst to me!” she wrote. Christopher began his monologue by insinuating that Kenya was on medication. The former Miss USA decided to interrupt him. ”Kenya got up and charged out of her seat.”
Christopher grabbed Kenya’s arm to protect his “wife” Natalie, but NeNe said it was “not in an aggressive way.” That’s when Kenya’s friend, Brandon DeShazer, stepped him to separate Kenya and Chris.
“Kenya was the spark that lit the fire. Whenever she’s around, we have the worst times!” NeNe wrote in her blog. “I’ve been on this show from the very beginning and we have NEVER had a physical altercation on this show!”
Many viewers blamed NeNe for riling things up. She hosted the Pillow Talk event that included a Q&A portion complete with touchy topics that could have easily offended her guests. While NeNe tweeted that she’d accept some responsibility for her part in it, she said she expected her guests to exercise self-control.
“I don’t condone violence! I can’t control adults and it’s not my fault if adults decide to fight on their own!” she clarified. “Everyone knew what they were walking into. My intentions were to build couple unity within the group, but as you can see, things got turnt all the way up.”
While she was the host of the party, NeNe said she wasn’t orchestrating everything.
“There are always intentions for these parties and group gatherings which is totally out of my control,” she said.
NeNe, the only original cast member who remains on the show, expressed her shame over how things developed.
“Violence is never okay with me,” she wrote. “I think it’s a sad display of behavior and I think it is sad to the Black community to be a part of such negative activity! I am bigger; I am better and for that I apologize!”
